Spring time and ferns

It's a beautiful day today ~ warm and sunny!
I bought my "yearly ferns" for the back porch and hung them, and now the porch seems to be saying "come and sit and enjoy".

I'm looking forward to spending lots more days on the back porch.

I've also painted some cute little rocks to put in plastic easter eggs for an egg hunt which we have every year for our granddaughter. Little keepsakes.

Hi Donna,
Your back porch looks so inviting! I am looking to warmer days to be able to sit outside too. Those little Easter rocks are adorable :-)

How wonderful. I can't wit until we can "open" our porch. I have wanted to put boston ferns out.....perhaps this is the year....yours look great! And, the Easter rocks are so clever.....what a nice keepsake. :-) Rosie

Your back porch looks like a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy a cup of tea :-} and I love the look of ferns hanging from baskets on porch's. Your little granddaughter will love her Easter rocks. What an adorable idea.

Your porch looks like such a lovely, inviting place, and so lush with the ferns in place.

Your porch must be a favorite place for you. I love our sunroom, and spend as much time there as possible.

Love those Easter rocks.

Donna~ Your back porch is so pretty! Do you take your paints there to paint in nice weather? Love your cute Easter rocks!

Suzanne~ I sketch outside on the porch, but usually paint inside. I find it easier to paint inside since I have everything I need right there.

I love your porch! Can't wait to have my coffee of a morning outside. Cute Easter rocks!

Maddie loves these little rocks - I do too!! She has them on the infamous Christmas shelf around an Easter Bunny snowglobe from her easter basket!! Thanks, Mom! You're the best!

Hi Donna. I am stopping by to see what you've been up to since I have been away. I knew if I kept reading I'd find some painted rocks somewhere! Love all the pictures of spring in your other posts. I guess it's also time for me to get my annual ferns for our front porch. The little finch that usually makes a nest there will be looking for a home soon.
